FOR THE COMMUNITY
2022 Sponsorship Opportunities

To give our students the best chance to achieve their academic goals, Haese Academy fundraises to provide all necessary academic materials:
Personal Computers / Tablets
Haese Academy Classroom Uniforms
In the Dominican Republic, it is common for players and coaches of all ages and skill levels to share the limited amount of quality equipment they can afford.
Through the generous support of Haese Academy donors, we can level the playing field by providing quality equipment to our student-athletes, giving them the best chance to reach their fullest potential:
Professional Gym Equipment
Training Shorts & Pants
Training Shirts & Uniforms
Team Training Tools
TEACHERS & COACHES
Haese Academy provides our student-athletes with year-round access to experienced, professional, bilingual teachers and coaches. As dedicated role models, they continue to positively impact the lives of our student-athletes and alumni.
A staggering number of families in the Dominican Republic face stark poverty, surviving on little more than a dollar a day. The hardworking young girls and boys learning at school and training at the baseball field in Las Terrenas often do so with little or no food in their stomachs.
Haese Academy's most important mission is to ensure proper nutrition every day, consistently fueling our student's minds and bodies. In addition, we provide MLB and NCAA approved supplements, and teach our students the fundamentals of health and nutrition.
Our goal is to provide consistent meal plans to the children in our primary school, and the student-athletes in our college prepatory program.
